Date(s) - 12/17/2020
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


When Canadian librarian Fiona visits Paris looking for her lost aunt, she runs into Parisian hobo Dom and sheer madness ensues. Created by and starring the Belgian comedic duo, Abel and Gordon, Lost in Paris is a whimsical, Tati-inspired farce with shades of Chaplin and vaudeville.

Each month we pick a culturally significant film for library patrons to watch on Kanopy. Then our virtual film club meets on Zoom to discuss the film! Registration is required.  Last day to register is December 15. Email invitations for Zoom will be sent out the day prior to the event.
